SVS AS-EQ1 SubEQ: World's most advanced bass room correction technology, made affordable.

I still want something that can handle up to four subs with XLR connections.

This looks very cool. When I get a second sub, I will definitely get one of these.

This sounds like the same Audyssey as is found in the newer AVRs with more filters for bass frequencies. I wonder if it is able to time correct multiple subs relative to each other?

It is the same Audyssey found in the Pro version (not shipped with AVR). Only difference is it is modified to handle low frequencies better. You can take up to 32 measurements.

The EQ1 will first work on each sub individually, then it will work with them together.

How so? I'm not familiar with the dcx2496.

Since SVS's own product page hadn't bee linked to yet, here:

SVS AS-EQ1 subwoofer EQ

I emailed them and asked a couple of questions. I wanted to know if they planned on releasing one with balanced connections (despite the limited benefit), and if the PC connection via USB would allow firmware updates. No, they have no future version in the works with balanced connections, and yes, they plan to make firmware updates available on their website.

Having no balanced connections means I'll have to buy new sub cables, and I won't have the cool clicking when I connect them, but I'm still interested enough in this product to pull the trigger, I'd say.

Oh, and I should go into more detail about their response to the balanced connections question. Here's what they said:

 Quote:
The addition of balanced I/O will require new internal hardware/PCBs, and is not being contemplated at this time. The overwhelming majority of enthusiasts use RCA connections for the subwoofer and the balanced I/O crowd remains a distinct minority. If this product sells well and we (SVS/Audyssey) can recoup the significant investment bringing it to market, and the requests for balanced I/O remains high, we'll revisit the subject on V2 (if there is one), but there is nothing like that in the works right now.


I know RCA is the overwhelmingly popular choice for people with home theaters, but it seems like the percentage of people sporting XLR would jump up quite a bit when you're talking about people who would add an $800 sub EQ to their systems. I'm sure it would still be in the minority, but still, you'd think the figure would become significant.

That adds a fair bit of value, but I would imagine there is a limited market.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Costs as much as a lot of subs.
